While the branding and signage are for independent businesses, Joe believes there is still a certain recognisable theme that, as previously stated, reflects on them, and is something of a point of pride. 

 

“When people come in and say we saw your work just driving around, and they didn’t even have to see the logo sticker before they knew it was something we’d done, we built our brand to be recognisable”, said Joe. 

Joe & Nat Logue work as a team at their Laidlaw Street workshop & office to create striking signage for local organisations & businesses including sole traders

Joe and Nat work together as a team, and speak highly of each other’s efforts and input, with Joe as the creative lead who Nat describes as, “He works all hours of the day and night, always going above and beyond to make sure things are met. If people have tight timelines we do try to get everything done for them. We spend a lot of time trying to get everything right, he’s a perfectionist.”

 

Joe praises Nat’s work in return, saying she “Does everything, I couldn’t do it without her. She’s out here installing, running machines, she is very capable”
